Early Childhood Talk with Wanda
Thursday, May 12
9-10am, 5th floor music room
Topic: Handling transitions and change at the end of the school year.
Change can be hard for ALL of us, and particularly challenging for preschoolers. As we approach the end of the school year, how do we support children as they move from the structure of school to the more open-ended days of summer, and eventually to the start of the new school year? How can we help them understand their feelings about saying goodbye to their teachers and friends and moving on to new experiences? What behaviors can we expect during this time of change and how can we make the transitions as smooth as possible?
Join us with your questions and concerns as we explore these questions and discuss the ways in which guiding children sensitively through this time can influence how they may handle other changes in their future.
